Although it is just another object, I share Carolyn's concern about the
potential uses.

I would suggest that if we absolutely must add this object, we add
text that reminds the implementor/user that the network will classify
the traffic as normal or excess based on CIR/Bc/Be and _not_ the DE bit
although it may still use the DE bit to determine discard preference.
